Chitosan fiber(CF)as reinforcement to improve the mechanical properties of calcium phosphate cement(CPC)is presented,while CF/CPC composite artificial bone with concentric fiber structure that mimics the microstructure of natural bone is fabricated.Special resin precise moulds produced by rapid prototyping(RP)are used to prepare two types of cylindrical CF/CPC artificial bones(φ20mm×20 nun andφ10 mm×20mm),which are evaluated respectively by initial intensity and in vivo intensity experiment.The… Expand
Degradation Behavior of Chitosan-fiber/calcium Phosphate Cement Composite for Artificial Bone
To imporve the biodegradability of self-setting calcium phosphate bone cement (CPC) adding chitosan fibers (CF) is proposed.The degradability of CF/CPC composite artificial bone is reasearched on theExpand
Acrylic bone cements: Effects of the poly(methyl methacrylate) powder size and chitosan addition on their properties
